Govt. institutes ban on sale  of alcohol due to elections

PHILIPSBURG--In the interest of public order and safety, and to prevent undue influence on voters, the Government of St. Maarten announced on Wednesday that a ban on the sale, delivery and dispensing of alcohol would be in effect from 6:00pm Wednesday, January 10, until 6:00am Friday, January 12.
